Strange week

Of course things have been a bit hectic and stressful as I am wrapping things up at my current position so that I can get ready to start rolling along with the new position. The official 2 week notice of resignation is in as of last wednesday and that means that I need to get my butt in gear and get things ready for the rep that is going to be replacing me. This week will undoubtedly involve me taking him around to my accounts and introducing him while I also spread the news to my accounts that I am leaving. I have told one or two, but not that many really. Continue reading

Quick movie thought for the day

The newest Potter film was good but did not live up to the hype.

That about sums up my thoughts on the most recent installment of Harry Potter. It was an entertaining 2 and a half hours, but it wasn’t great and absolutely does not live up to all of the hype that led up to the show. I wonder, is it a case of the movie being just mediocre or a case of the marketing machine working too well? After a movie has been talked about and promoted as much as the newest Potter flick, is it even possible to live up to the expectations? Kind of a similar situation as with the newer Star Wars Movies that left some people feeling like they just weren’t as good as they thought they would be….

Decide for yourself, but you may want to wait until it becomes available as a rental.

I’ll tell you one thing….

I hate paying bills….I know it is necessary, but I really detest doing it. I am usually pretty tight with my money, but I think I am going to attempt to tighten it up a bit more and work on 3 financial projects I would like to complete in the next year or so.

I guess when you live the extravagant lifestyle that I do, bills are inevitable! haha

Rambling thoughts today

So I was sitting at work and had a few minutes to myself so I decided to post up a little thing I had written a week or so back while at work. I don’t know if you will find it interesting but I have decided that I am going to start sharing some of the things I write, either in the past or anything I may write in the future. I won’t share it all, but now and then I may share some just to keep things from getting into a routine here on the site. Anyhow, here is what I wrote the other day: Continue reading

Research project #1

So you have a young child that up until now slept like, well….a baby. They may wake up on and off through the night, but typically they sleep pretty well. Then one night you wake up to a screaming child and it seems that no matter what you do you just can’t seem to calm them down. They may be screaming, thrashing around and looking purely terrified and it tears at your heart watching them be this frightened. You know they just had a bad dream and that nothing is really going to hurt them but you can’t seem to get them to understand that. It seems like the more you try to calm your child the more frightened they become. This cycle stretches on for what seems an eternity until at last they fall back to sleep and you are left sitting there feeling like you failed your child, like you couldn’t be there for them like they needed. You may even be scratching your head wondering “what the heck was that?” or “where did that come from?”.  The answer could be Sleep Terror’s. Continue reading
